Inspired by an Instagram picture I saw, I worked with Claire to create personalized embroidered art for each of her teachers for the end of the school year.
then it was off to the craft supply store to pick out pretty colors!
I could seriously waste a lot of time just picking out different color combinations, so fun!
I settled on red, yellow, green and aqua - kind of teacher-like without going completely primary.
next, using a fabric pen, I traced the letters onto white fabric...
...and I got to stitching!
this is such a quick project, I would estimate that I had less than an hour into each one
Finally, I mounted each one in a white frame...
...and had Claire write her name on the backs.
I used the Take Home Bags as wrapping and also included a Barnes & Noble gift card with each one to create a heartfelt, practical and hopefully a fun package of gifts for her teachers to receive.
There are so many applications for this project - next up, I'm thinking I may have Claire write her name and I'll stitch it up as a way to remember/document her handwriting through the years. She also recently drew a picture of our family, maybe I'll stitch that? The choices are endless!
